Marriage contracts

People marry out of love. A marriage contract is often considered unromantic. In the event of separation, however, the legal provisions frequently produce results that do not take the individual circumstances into account. People who fail to inform themselves and make provisions can be in for nasty surprises. We therefore advise you on the legal consequences of marriage. If these do not fit your personal living arrangements, we draft a tailor-made marriage contract. Agreements can also be made and amended during the marriage.

If the endeavour of a shared life fails, injured feelings often make an amicable separation difficult. However, a notarial agreement on the consequences of divorce is quicker and cheaper than a long dispute in the divorce court. As notaries, we provide impartial mediation and advice in this difficult situation on the terms of the divorce settlement.
